Changing the Narrative - Dr. Mark Batterson

6/17/2018
More
The first four letters of every testimony is “test”. Once you pass the test, you get a testimony. And once you get it, you need to use it. Why? Because it's not “your” testimony. God is writing His story through your life! Your testimony is your gift to the world.

Love your neighbor - Joel Schmidgall

6/10/2018
More
Jesus summation of the Old Testament law was to love God and love your neighbor. It's sounds like a simple task. But Jesus unpacks the complexity of the truth of what it means to authentically love those around you. And he also redefines our definition of a neighbor. And he challenges us to neighbor in a way that crosses lines, inconveniences our schedules, and forces us to step into the awkward spaces. He does all of this in one parable known as "The Good Samaritan." Join us as we walk...

Obedience - Marion Mason

5/27/2018
More
Sometimes we are waiting on God when God is actually waiting on us. We communicate to God that we are ready to co-labor with him through consecration. Consecration is an act of Obedience and Love towards God.

Seed the Clouds - Dr. Mark Batterson

5/20/2018
More
Most of us get stuck spiritually because we're waiting for God to make a move while God is waiting for us to make a move. Quit watching the clouds and start seeding them. Delayed obedience is disobedience!

Interpreting Jesus - Joshua Symonette

4/29/2018
More
When Jesus asked his disciples, “who do you say that I am,” he was gauging to see whether they had the right interpretation. Many people have become angry at the church or walked away completely because Jesus' followers have the wrong interpretation. So the question is, do you have a true interpretation and from where did it come?

Old Testament God - Heather Zempel

4/22/2018
More
If you have a problem with the God of the Bible, it's probably because of something He did in the Old Testament. Talking snakes, natural disasters, ancient moral codes, divine violence, sanctioned genocide . . . what does it tell us about God and what does it have to do with us? This weekend, we will confront the God of the Old Testament and explore best practices for engaging the text of Scripture.

Counterfeit gods - Joel Schmidgall

4/15/2018
More
Assumptions, associations, and misconceptions all tear down our faith in God. The problem is that they are rooted in untruth and so we walk away from a god that doesn’t actually exist. The goal of today’s message is not to push you to a next level faith, it’s not to convince anyone to believe in God, the goal is to weed through the misconceptions and identify the counterfeit gods in our thought process. Those ideas that we learned as a kid but never gained a great understanding or, those...

God in the Hands of Angry People - Dr. Mark Batterson

4/8/2018
More
In the beginning, God created humankind in His image. We have been creating God in our image ever since. But what you end up with is a god who looks a lot like us! That’s the God we’re dismantling in this series so we can discover the true God, the God of the Bible. And that God might surprise you.

Storyline - Dr. Mark Batterson

4/1/2018
More
The key to changing the way we think, the way we feel, and the way we behave is NOT changing the way we think, the way we feel, and the way we behave. The key? Changing the stories we tell ourselves!

After Amen - Dr. Mark Batterson

3/25/2018
More
Prayer is a two-sided coin. You can’t just pray like it depends on God, you also have to work like it depends on you. Pray. Then pray some more. But at some point, you need to stop praying about it and starting doing something about it. The best prayer is a well-lived life. The best prayer is doing what Jesus did. And God will help you do it beyond your ability. It’s called the anointing, and it’s the difference between the best you can do and the best God can do.

Deliver Us - Joshua Symonette

3/18/2018
More
Temptation and evil are a constant presence in our world. Jesus himself was tempted. But we have a way out and a way to win. When Jesus says, “lead is not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” he is saying we cannot deliver ourselves. Prayer is both our hedge and our help!

From Now On - Dr. Mark Batterson

3/11/2018
More
It takes seventeen seconds to recite the Lord’s prayer, but it takes a lifetime to live it and learn it. The turning point in the prayer, the tipping point, is this: “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” This prayer is the difference between bitter and better. If you’re stuck emotionally or spiritually, maybe it’s because you’ve prayed the first half of this prayer but not the second half. If you want to be whole, you have to pray the whole thing.

​Daily Bread - Joel Schmidgall

3/4/2018
More
Today we make the transition in the Lord’s Prayer from talking about God the Father to talking about ourselves. But the prayer is a wonderful model of relationship. It starts with relationship building (Our Father), moves to character (Hallowed be your name) and progresses towards need (Give us daily bread). To seek God for daily bread is an act of trust. He doesn’t promise us weekly bread or monthly bread, but daily bread, so as to keep us cultivated relationship with Him. But the secret...

Thy Kingdom Come - Joel Schmidgall

2/25/2018
More
The prayer "thy kingdom come” is not a prayer we pray and then wait for things to happen. It’s a prayer that demands our own repentance, demands faith, and demands that we live out the actions of Christ. But the actions of Christ are counter culture to the ways that we have seen power abused throughout history. His kingdom is about service and justice and grace. When we pray that his name would be great and pray that his kingdom would come, we must continue the Lord’s prayer to the next...

Our Father - Heather Zempel

More
As we enter the season of Lent, we begin a focused season of prayer. We pray to a God who gives us the proximity of a father and the perspective of the heavens.

Kingdom Calculus - Mark Batterson

2/11/2018
More
When you put what is in your hands into the hands of God, 5 + 2 no longer equals 7. When you add God to the equation, 5 + 2 = 5000 R12. It’s Kingdom Calculus. By definition, a God-sized dream is beyond your ability and beyond your resources. In other words, you cannot do it. But God can. And that’s how God gets the glory! He does things we can’t take credit for.

Believing - Dr. Dick Foth

John wants us to believe what he found to be true! Trust the Jesus he trusted and experience what he experienced. John is saying “Look at what happens when you BELIEVE! Look at the result of TRUST!”
